U.S. Sen. David Vitter today issued the following statement in response to President Obama's evening address on his administration's plan for our military's continued presence in Afghanistan.

"It took a while, but the president finally came forward with his plan to increase troop levels in Afghanistan. I am concerned, however, that the president hinted at a scheduled plan for withdrawal because I strongly believe that announcing such a plan will only embolden our enemies to plan their future acts of terror around the window of our proposed date of departure," said Vitter.
